So I am at repcon headquarters where the rifle is supposed to be but I cant even see it, its not floating or stuck in the ground. I have tried third person looking while steathing all over the place but I cant grab it. Anyone else have this happen were you able to obtain it? --- http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Bleeding+Hollow&n=Shadowmail
Look straight down when you do third person stealthing. Took me a few minutes to figure it out too --- They can invent heat dampening systems, mass drivers and huge spacestations, yet can't seem to install a timed feeding system on a fishtank. Go figure.
When I found it, it was laying on the floor and I couldnt pick it up. So what I did was took my grenade launcher (or any explosive) and shot it a bunch of times, eventually it will get in a position where the nose or butt of the gun will be sticking out of the force field. You can then walk up and grab it when It's sticking out. It takes a couple tries though, so save it right before in case you run out of explosives.
The barrier makes it float, but you cant disable it or get through it. A patch just came out about 20 minutes ago though, maybe it helped fix that problem. Restart your game and install the patch and maybe it will work.
